How to Make a Crochet Cowl 22 Free Patterns

Scarves are popular all year long: you can wear a light and lacy version in the summer or a bulky version in the winter. They can take a boring outfit to the next level and add a pop of much needed color. Basically, scarves are the best accessory there is. Lately, it seems that the most popular scarf trend is cowls.

Cowls are a shorter, circular version of this traditional accessory. Find out how to make a crochet cowl. Free patterns like these don't come along often, so you'll want to stock up! You can't go wrong when you start working on a free crochet cowl pattern, so be sure to add them to your must-make list. Best of all, anyone can sport a crochet cowl. Free patterns are a great way to try new things and stretch your skills since they don't cost a dime. Find your next crochet cowl pattern and discover why this is such a popular trend.

We think you'll fall in love with these patterns because they're so practical. You can throw them on over your head and run out the door; no tying or folding required! Also, you can cover your mouth and chin, so you won't be as exposed to winter temperatures. While you're at it, add a hood to your cowl so you can keep your head warm. These crochet cowl patterns are too perfect to pass up.

Crochet Cowl Patterns

Fun and bright free crochet cowl patterns make the process of crocheting so much more fun and exciting. If you're new to crochet, a cowl is the perfect pattern to start with because they're so quick and easy. Many crochet cowls are worked flat in a rectangle and then connected. A dishcloth may be the perfect pattern for learning how to crochet, but a cowl is an ideal first project once you've mastered the basics.

A crochet cowl is the perfect neck warmer for a commute or walk down the street; you can stay warm and toasty without the added bulk. We also have hooded cowls that will keep your head warm in addition to your neck! You won't believe how fun it is to make your own crochet cowl. Easy patterns make the life of a crocheter so much more exciting. Don't believe us? Pick a crochet cowl pattern and see what we mean.

Crochet Infinity Scarf Patterns

Houndstooth Crocheted Scarf

If you're new to the world of crochet, start with a few of these projects to get your feet wet. After beginning with smaller cowl patterns, move on to crochet infinity scarf patterns!

Infinity scarves look like cowls but they wrap around two or three times, making them a bit bulkier. Infinity scarves have a fuller look in general than cowls do, and often an infinity scarf is worn to complete an outfit rather than keep the neck warm under a winter jacket.

Free patterns like the ones here work great in a variety of temperatures and climates. Remember, once winter is over, you can still work on infinity scarf or crochet cowl patterns.

Everyone looks good when they're rocking a crochet scarf. Scarves really do help you get in a groove and get comfortable with crochet. Save each crochet cowl pattern in this list and make them as gifts for loved ones or as a treat for yourself!

Which do you prefer: cowls or infinity scarves?
